I logged in countless hours at the lake during the summers of my childhood, and some of my favorite memories are of family gatherings at our lake house and on the water.

My earliest years were spent growing up on lakefront property at Lake Cherokee. Mom organized big birthday parties and family reunions filled with fun and laughter, and dad was always taking us fishing.
